"It is true you have foreign fighters coming from Europe, but this is a tiny minority of the overall problem", French.

The two-day summit kicks off with receptions at Buckingham Palace and Downing Street later Tuesday.

"I say that very seldom, I don't say that often about anybody". He said that "I don't want to complicate it". NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg and some leaders were taking part in a side event Tuesday morning.

Trump has been urging member-states to keep to their pledge of increasing contributions by two percent of gross domestic product by 2024. He also firmly expressed his frustration that Trump withdrew hundreds of American troops from Syria in October.

With the possibility of Trump winning reelection next year, and Macron in office until at least 2022, both have an interest in ensuring a squabble doesn't become a bitter break-up.

Trump wasted little time, saying only half-jokingly that Macron's response to one journalist's question about how France was dealing with returning Islamic State fighters was "one of the greatest non-answers I have ever heard".

Some Nato members have condemned Ankara's military operation in Syria to take on the Kurdish militant group.

Before heading to London, Mr Erdogan suggested Turkey might not back Poland and NATO's Baltic allies - Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania - should they require defending unless the allies support Turkish concerns about Syrian Kurdish fighters, which Turkey sees as terrorists.

However, Mr Macron told reporters: "We don't have the same definition of terrorism around the [Nato] table". "They have had a very rough year". He added that Turkey "could not have been nicer, could not have been more supportive".

"I think we'll probably be able to work it out but we have a big trade relationship and I'm sure that within a short period of time things will be looking very rosy", Trump said.

U.S. President Donald Trump has pressed hard for other member states to meet the alliance's spending rules, and Stoltenberg announced last week that nine North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies were now meeting the spending target of 2 percent of gross domestic product, "up from just three allies a few years ago". But he's often appeared consumed by the day-to-day battle against impeachment.

A month ago, in a call-in to Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage's radio show, Trump warned Britain that Corbyn would be "so bad for your country, so bad". We have a lot of power with respect to trade.

But Trump was adamant that the cloud of impeachment wasn't undercutting his negotiating position on the global stage.

"When I look at Turkey, they now are fighting against those who fought with us shoulder to shoulder against [IS]. if we just have discussions about what we pay and we don't have clear discussions about such a situation, we are not serious". "Prior to landing I read the Republicans Report on the Impeachment Hoax". It's turned out to be a hoax. "It is done for purely political gain, they are going to see whether or not they can do something in 2020 because otherwise they are going to lose".

He also said that France, where Macron is seeking to push through delicate and controversial reforms of a large state sector, was "not doing well economically".

And now Trump is lashing out at Macron.

He also said Prince Charles was "so so good", adding, "He loves the environment, he loves [his] country so much".

The meeting kicked off with talk around the new NAFTA, the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement.

That statement quickly drew a shot back from Trump.

Underlining the breadth of strife in a transatlantic bloc hailed by its backers as the most successful military alliance in history, Trump demanded that Europe pay more for defence and also make concessions to USA interests on trade.
